    replacing the seat belt guide loop(99 TA)

    Hello, I'm new here!

    The seat belt guide loop on the drivers side of my TA broke last year. It's really annoying, and probably a bit unsafe to be that way. Does anyone know how difficult replacing it would be? It looks like I'd have to take the seat belt out to do it? Also where could I get a replacement guide? Last, is it something I'm better off just having a garage/dealer do, and any idea how much it might be?
    Thanks!

    Picked mine up at the dealership. As I recall, it takes a torx bit (can't remember the size) to get the belt loose and then you can slide the new guide over the belt and attach it to your seat. Re-attach the the belt to the car and you're ready to go. It was about a two minute job.

    agreed... very simple to do
    definintely NOT worth paying someone else to do.
    the part is fairly cheap too (maybe 10 - 15 bucks)

    I'm fine with doing it, I've just never taken the seat belt off of a car before, so I wasn't sure how involved it was going to be. Unless there is some simple way that I can thread the belt through the guide without doing that?

    nope you just need the torx bit to undo the belt on the bottom just move your seat forward all the way and it is easy to get at. 1 bolt and you are done.

    Thanks for the replies. The dealer I called is taking it's time getting info for me. Researching on my own I've found this much out, and I think it's accurate:
    front seat shoulder belt guide (96-02 coupe), neutral, RH = 16789714
    front seat shoulder belt guide (96-02 coupe), neutral, LH = 16789715
    front seat shoulder belt guide (97-99 coupe), gray, RH = 16799272
    front seat shoulder belt guide (97-99 coupe), gray, LH = 16799273
    front seat shoulder belt guide (97-02 coupe), pewter, RH = 16799274
    front seat shoulder belt guide (97-02 coupe), pewter, LH = 16799275

    I thought I'd give them part #s to speed things along but I am not sure of which is which side. I assume RH/LH is right hand/left hand, but looking at the car from the front or rear?

    Also I'm a bit concerned that none of those match the part # stamped on my broken guide(16729477). Do I have the complete wrong part # or just the #s changed?

    Thanks!
